Calculator hotkey not working with UAC off.

Hi.

I can't run my calculator by using the FN+NUM Enter hotkey when I have Windows UAC disabled.

Error source:
HKLM \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ WMI \ Security \
00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

Does anyone know a possible workaround? I use it a lot so it's a bit of an annoyance 🙂

UAC must not be disabled if you want to run Metro apps.

I always disable it on Windows 7 but not on Windows 8

So is hibernation, you should never disable hibernation if you want to benefit from the fast boot/shutdown

Yes good point Nehmia I don't ever use the start screen/metro apps.

My UAC is off, calculator still works.

You mean the fn + enter combo? If so, it still works for me. Win 8.1

interesting,
with uac off (first thing to change on new os)

windows 8 working
windows 8.1 update not working
windows 7 working

something broke it when updating from 8 to 8.1

hibernation is disabled (second thing to change on new os)
its dangerous when multibooting. it will corrupt files.
with ssd it would save me less than 10 seconds boot time. i can live with that.
